The 12U Houston Rangers, a youth baseball team composed of players from Bellaire and West University Place, recently attended the weeklong Cooperstown Dreams Park and American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame Invitational Tournament in Cooperstown, N.Y., home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
The Rangers, who represented their communities as the Bayou City Broncos, were among 104 teams from the United States and Canada at the tournament. The team won four of eight games played before being eliminated in the second round.
Ben Blachman, Jonathan Blum, Coby Lowenstein, Ryan Tiras and Ryan Williamson hit a combined 12 home runs during the event.
Other members of the Broncos include Christian Del Tatto, Connor Franey, Andrew Leyendecker, Dylan May, Jack McInnis, Scott McWilliams, James Moskosky, Joe Sondock and Ian Toubin. Coaches for the team are Austin Faught, Steven Sondock, Jeff May and Jim Moskosky.
The players and coaches also visited the Hall of Fame and were inducted into the American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame.
The Rangers will resume tournament play later this summer in the Houston area.
